Hi Chestnut Class. I am so sorry that we have had to close and we won't be together in class for a while. Until we are back in class together we will be learning in different ways. Each day there will be 3 live inputs on Microsoft Teams:
After each input there will be work uploaded to this page for you to complete. Once you've completed it you can send it to me: firstname.lastname@example.org
You can also send me questions, ask for more information or ask for usernames and passwords if you have forgotten.
It is really important that you keep learning the best you can whilst at home. I would love to see your work and put it on the website for other children to see.

We need to understand what is on this new island if we are to live here for some time. Have a look at the map of the island. Can you find all of the places/ objects/ things that are natural (physical)? These are things that have grown or formed without any help from humans e.g. lagoon. Can you find the places/ objects/ things that humans have built? e.g. flags. You can write them in the list and draw a picture of what they look like too.

Using what we learnt yesterday in geography about the human and physical features of the island, we need to find places to get all the things we need to survive.
Can you remember what humans need to survive?
You are given the following:
an empty bottle
What will you collect to make sure you survive? Where will you get it from? How will you get it?
Draw a picture of what you would collect and write where you would get it from and how you got it.
e.g. draw (bottle of water) I would fill up my bottle in the lagoon.

The first riddle takes us to the Whomping Wood. The trees have delicious apples growing on them as you try to pick one the tree start attacking you! Watch the video below and pretend that you are the characters at the trees. What happened? You are going to write a diary about what happened to you.
Our special word today is the connective 'but'. We can use this in our sentences to say what happened when we did something. e.g. I went to pick a delicious looking apple from the tree but the tree grabbed it back and hit my hand!
